Upset for PM May in UK June 8 election?

Prime Minister May might find her apple cart upturned next week when voters send in a hung Parliament, if a new opinion-polling method by YouGov actually works, as this article explains:

Robert Barnes, the U.S. lawyer who made hundreds of thousands of dollars betting on Brexit and Donald Trump's victory, has told me his money is on Labour outperforming projections because it's harvesting the anti-establishment vote. 

That's exactly what the YouGov model is showing, too. 

The likelihood of a hung parliament, in which no party has a majority, is not negligible. May is in danger of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Even if she does get a majority, it appears highly unlikely that it will be strong enough to give her a free hand, both in Brexit negotiations and in domestic politics.

Popular discontent with ruling but indifferent elites continues ...
